I am not TTC or even close, so take what I say with a grain of salt, but no. Don’t wait for her. You need to live your life on your schedule. She should be happy for you like you are for her. Simple.

I wouldn’t wait, in fact it might actually be fun if you were able to raise your babies together.

I don’t think that she will care if you are pregnant at the same time.

I wouldn’t hold off.  I think it’d be cool if you were both pregnant at the same time, it gives you another thing to bond over.

Doesn’t sound like a situation to be jealous of, for sure! Oh man. Do not plan your life around hers.

Well yay for her!  But I would keep trying if I were you.  Who knows if it may take a little while and you may not end up pregnant while she is – or maybe you will get pregnant next month!  Either way, don’t stop your plans.  It would be a little while after actually getting pregnant that you would announce it anyways, so I don’t think you would be stealing her thunder!

Don’t wait, it’ll be so much fun to be pregnant at the same time. My sister-in-law is due in a month and her best friend is due two days before her! They are both having boys:)

You absolutley should wait.  A true friend wouldn’t pregnant copy like that. 

I’m completely kidding.  Jealousy is normal, rearranging your life because your friend got pregnant first is a bit extreme though.

@ejs4y8: Agree.  that’s not something to be jealous of.

Your best friend doesn’t get to have “baby thunder.”  Everyone needs to live their life on their schedule and not worry so much about other people.

Go ahead and TTC. Most people that have babies do so in their 20s and 30s, it’s almost a given that one of your friends of family members will be pregnant at the same time you are.

Just think of this: play dates for the babies!

Well, here’s to hoping the guy’s not a douchebag and they’re more careful in the future =(

Maybe she can go to planned parenthood for treatment?
